Hurt & Anderson and Katie Pritchard
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
In this double bill, you get to preview two fantastic Edinburgh Fringe comedy shows before anyone else!
Hurt & Anderson: Come What May
Hurt and Anderson are on the edge. After a sold out show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, they've come to Bristol to perform their brand new show for, possibly, the last time.
Both vying for the spotlight – can they make it work?
Will Laura ever stop sabotaging the show? And will Georgia finally admit the truth she has never before dared to speak – that she's never really liked Laura's favourite film Moulin Rouge that much?
Come what may, this will be a laugh out loud hour of four star sketch and musical comedy from this engaging and charismatic duo.
"These girls could be the next Mitchell and Webb."
Three Weeks ★★★★
"A pleasure to watch…an exciting act."
Broadway Baby ★★★★
Katie Pritchard: Hurricane Katie
Board up the windows, loot a supermarket and then hide in the basement, it's "Hurricane Katie" and this is comedy carnage!
Like most memorable UK gales, Katie Pritchard is blowing over the patio furniture of comedy, partially damaging the garden fence of genre and dropping a large, sturdy branch onto the car bonnet of musicality.
To extend a metaphor already stretched to its limit: Like all the best weather-based wind events, Comedy Carnage sweeps up a lot of stuff and hurls it together in one beautiful whirlwind of chaos.
In this instance that chaos is jokes, music, poems, dancing and facts – rather than an actual literal whirlwind of cows, patio umbrellas, bill-boards and roofing materials, which would be terrifying for her audience, but is co-incidentally the name of her next show.
Performing in her unique Alternative Musical Stand-Up style, you should expect characters, shiny costumes, sweets, parodies and original songs on her Ukulele.
Katie also arrogantly claims to be very proficient at impersonations of inanimate objects, and that she is a professional Kazoo player, both of which are either true or the ramblings of a woman with too much time on her hands.
"Sometimes surreal, often unusually perceptive, but always original and entertaining."
Female Arts Magazine ★★★★
"Bags of charm… a star of the future."
